But it was wrong to say a region scattering many rivers and lakes. It could have been good if you had said:  scattered with rivers and lakes.


Not sure if even "scattered with" quite conveys 密集; maybe something like "with a dense network of rivers and lakes".

Thanks. You're absolutely right, Nano. I was just commenting on the grammaticality of the tructure rather than the accuracy of translation. Sorry for being misleading.

"Dense" is good for 密集. Hence, another option with that "-ed with" structure could be "an area densely covered with lakes and rivers".

packed with

I don't think packed with can be used to replace "a dense network of"... . As for dictionary recommendation, the best learner's dictionary is Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English (fourth edition) with CD-ROM edition. I installed the CD-ROM edition into my computer and have been using it whenever I want to refer to. I have benefited a lot from using the Longman Dictionary.
